Thesis Thursday- Eunice Borunda

February 2, 2017


Eunice Borunda is our guest on Thesis Thursday

Here is what she has to say:

A little bit about myself, I am the oldest child of four kids, I have two sisters and a brother. For this reason, I have tried to be an exemplary model to my three younger siblings. I am currently working towards a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry and molecular and cellular biology at the University of Arizona, and although it has been challenging, it has been a great learning experience. I am now entering my fifth year at the U of A, and I participate and continue to get involved in programs that relate to my future career. I plan on attending graduate school to obtain a Masters in biochemistry so that I may conduct research at an academic institution like the University of Arizona’s Medical Center. Currently, I am working in Dr. Tax’s lab on a The Kino Heritage Fruit Tree Project.

Jesus Garcia, a UBRP alum and staff member at the Arizona State Museum, proposed the expansion of land for ancestral plants (fruit trees) to create a more diverse and rich ecosystem in areas such as Tumacacori National Historical Park and Tucson Origin Heritage Park. My goal of this project is to create a phylogenic tree of fruit trees that are found within the Sonoran Region. Working in a lab has allowed me to become a better visual learner, and how to solve complex problems that might occur in a lab.
